CD reviews

CD review - When You're Ready One of the most celebrated acoustic guitarists working within the Americana field, Molly Tuttle is two-time International Bluegrass Music Association Guitarist of the Year, the first female to be so honored. "When You're Ready" is Tuttle's first full-fledged solo album, having previously recorded an EP ("Rise"), albums with both the Tuttles and The Goodbye Girls, and a long-ago recording with her father, Jack ("The Old Apple Tree"). ...
CD review - Rise EPs are a strange breed. Some are no more than demos for a larger work. Others are a hodgepodge of material recorded here and there and sold to help pay for gas money to the artists' next live gig. And some, like Molly Tuttle's "Rise", are exquisitely constructed messages in a bottle, to sum up the artists' current stage of development. Tuttle could have easily named this EP, "Let's Get on With It" or "Watch What I Do Now," but "Rise" ...
Quietly but persistently, Becky Buller is emerging as a prominent bluegrass songwriter, with great cuts on disks by Doyle Lawson (the tremendous "Be Living"), Rhonda Vincent, Valerie Smith, IIIrd Tyme Out and Mark Newton. Her songs stand out for their incisiveness: the lyrics are plain-spoken, honest and direct; the melodies refreshingly uncluttered. Her first album as a performer, 2000's self-released "Rest My Weary Feet," was lean, warm, and engaging for those exact reasons. ...
